Voices of the Past C.D.’s tell the stories of Pioneer Women who planted their roots firmly in Canadian soil through adventure, hardship and joy. All of the stories were researched, written and presented in first person by Pauline Grondin.

Stories of Women in Upper Canada During the War of 1812

The Women of Upper Canada were left at home and in the soldiers’ encampments with the war raging around them.

The War of 1812 opened up a world of drama, conflict and struggle for survival both on and off the battlefield. The stories of “The Women” are a glimpse into their life as they experienced the stress of an enemy invasion, watched as their personal possessions were damaged or stolen and their houses put to the torch.

Many of the stories of these women grace the pages of history declaring them heroines of the war. Some of their stories are legend, handed down through family and friends.
